What are cookies?
Cookies are small data or text files that are installed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website or use a (mobile) application. The cookie file contains a unique code that allows you to recognize your browser during the visit to the online service or during subsequent, repeated visits. Cookies can be placed by the server of the website or application you visit, but also by servers from third parties that may or may not cooperate with this website or application. Cookies generally make the interaction between the visitor and the website or application easier and faster and help the visitor to navigate between the different parts of a website or application. Cookies can also be used to make the content of a website or application more relevant to the visitor by adapting it to his personal taste and needs.
Which cookies are there?
First party cookies are those cookies that are placed by a website that is currently being visited by the user (e.g., cookies placed by www.361.works).
Third-party cookies are cookies that are placed by a different domain name than that of the website that is visited by the user. If a user visits a website and a third party places a cookie through that Website, then this is a third-party cookie (e.g., cookies placed by Google, Twitter and Facebook).
Functional cookies are cookies that ensure that the website functions properly (e.g., cookies for log-in or registration, language preferences). Functional cookies are obviously first-party cookies.
Non-functional cookies are cookies that can be placed for statistical, social, targeting and commercial purposes. They have nothing to do with the purely technical support of the website. Cookies with statistical purposes allow you to check which pages of the website you visit, where your computer is located etc. Cookies with social purposes make it possible for the user to share the content of the visited website via social media directly with others. Cookies with targeting purposes allow that a profile is built based on your surfing behavior so that the displayed advertisements are tailored to your interests. Cookies with commercial purposes keep track of how many and which advertisements were shown to a user. Non-functional cookies can be first party or third party cookies.
Permanent cookies: These cookies remain on the user’s device for the duration determined in the cookie. They are activated each time the user visits the website that has placed this cookie (e.g., cookies placed by social media such as Twitter, Facebook, Google Analytics etc). Most non-functional cookies are permanent cookies.
Session cookies: These cookies allow us to simplify the actions of a user and to link them together during a browser session. A browser session starts when a user opens the browser window and ends when they close the browser screen. Session cookies are temporary. As soon as you close the browser, all session cookies will be deleted. Most functional cookies are session cookies.
